The 2019 Fibre Fest is warming up! Across the upcoming October long weekend at the Narooma Arts Precinct (next to the Kinema) there will be something for everyone to yarn about!

The Fibre Fest includes: a market place with beautiful hand-crafted fibre arts and crafts to purchase, a Fine Fibre exhibition displaying the quirkiest fibre arts in the region, Masterclasses in traditional basket weaving, loom weaving and indigo dyeing which are fully booked, however, there will be a range of fun drop-in fibre art workshops that anyone can take part in no matter what your age or skill level. There will also be a sausage sizzle and lots of cakes and cups of tea so you can sit back, relax and soak up the creative atmosphere in the Studio gardens.

All are welcome at the official opening of the Fibre Fest on Friday 4 October 6pm at the SoART Gallery (next to Kinema). Workshop activities at the Studios are on across Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 October, 10am to 3pm. The Fine Fibre Exhibition will run in the SoART Gallery from Friday 4 to Wednesday 9 October, 10am – 3pm.

There is one more important thing… and a very special part of the Fibre Fest weekend. There will be the film screening of ‘When Mary Meets Mohammad’ on Saturday 5 October at 5pm. This $10 event will be held at the at the Twist Factory, Hopkins Place, off Glasshouse Rocks Rd, Narooma, from 5pm (Doors open 4.30pm).

Come and enjoy this beautiful, heart-warming film. A true story which follows the arrival of Tasmania’s first detention centre through the eyes of local knitting club member Mary and asylum seeker Mohammad, who is detained inside the centre – as they connect through the gift of a knitted beanie. This will be a night to warm your heart! To make your bookings go to: or you can pay at the door on the night.
